It’s such a great way to begin the week 🙂 We today had the Kenya USAID Education Officials come to access on how the Tusome program is working..
Congratulations to these wonderful Melon Kids!! Amidst all the challenges they go through, they never seize to shine in so many ways, this month..
Thank you so much to the Amazing Emma,an avid Melon volunteer,she was yesterday at Melon Mission to check on us, and thank you so much to James..
Melon Mission is a haven for over 450 street children in Nakuru, Kenya. We provide them with food, education and clothing in a nurturing environment where they feel safe and loved.
Why the name “Melon” ?"Melon" is derived from the fruit known as a Watermelon. A fruit that normally grows wild, it is considered the best summer fruit because it is hardy, sweet and thirst quenching with its juice. The children, who are destitute and vulnerable, are placed in the most difficult circumstances in life, yet on the inside they are completely the opposite. As Bishop Joseph, the founder of Melon Mission used to say: "No matter the growing season a melon always ripens" and that was his attitude towards "his" children. "We have seen what is inside the needy children, and this is what we want to bring to fullness" - Bishop Joseph. Melon Mission is an organization that provides Kenyan destitute street children with food, clothing, and education as well as warmth and love. We serve 450 children who live in a slum area of Nakuru, Kenya. We serve children regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
